Thankfully, Bluehost offers both in a complete package, which means that by the end of this article you’ll have everything you need to know to build your dream site, get it up and running, and reveal it to the world.
A Better Website Builder With Bluehost
Put Your Hard Hat On. It’s Time to Build
First things first, we’re going to be building a website with a solid WordPress foundation. WordPress already powers over 40% of the web and is the go-to way to build websites for millions of people and businesses around the world. You can learn more about exactly what WordPress is here if you like, but for now, all you need to know is it’s the platform we’ll be building upon.
Thankfully, you don’t need to understand all that behind-the-scenes stuff due to intuitive, straightforward website builders like the Bluehost Website Builder. They make it easier than ever to create your site without any of the coding, jargon, or confusion of the past.
Drag. Drop. The Perfect Spot
The Bluehost Website Builder is as simple as drag and drop. If you can click, you can build your site brick by brick. Or ‘block by block’. You just select the kind of website section you want – like an image, text, contact field, whatever! – usually called a ‘block’, and then drag and drop it wherever you want it. If you don’t have an exact layout in mind or want to experiment with what works best for you, there’s a selection of templates to get you started and a Smart AI built in to help make sure everything fits just right. Thanks to Smart AI you never have to worry about breaking your design and will know it will look just right on everything from phone screens to 4K displays.
All you have to do is focus on getting your design the way you like it and the software works behind the scenes to do the rest.
